(ęBob Blue 1990)

Everybody has a little Baggins inside.
They've got some Baggins sensibility,
some Baggins pride,
And I bet there's a little Baggins
tendency to run and hide.
The Baggins in you cannot be denied.

If you look in the soul of a woman or man,
you are bound to discover a Took,
Who would rather experience living
Than do it vicariously in a book -
Who would go and eat out in the wilderness
rather than stay in the kitchen and cook.
The Took in yourself can be found
if you're willing to look.

So when I feel like a Baggins,
I organize my spices, or I alphabetize my books,
But when my Took side takes over,
I want to find adventure, just like all the other Tooks.
